MWDA’s One Piece Review 560

One Piece Review: Chapter 560 – The Prisoners From Impel Down

Luffy crush!

Luffy crush!

The chapter starts off with Hancock giving Luffy the keys to Ace’s handcuffs. I’m not sure what she was doing with them, I doubt the Marines would allow a Shichibukai to carry anything like a prisoners handcuff keys, especially the key’s to Ace’s cuffs, so I’m certain she stole it somewhere, though when and how I have no idea. Luffy thanks and hugs her, causing her to fall over in an overload of love ;). The Marines believe Luffy gave her a bear hug or something, and that she was defeated. Hancock thinks that is “marriage” now, now, Hancock, that’s too fast, plus I doubt Luffy will know what it is.

Smoker gets right back on Luffy’s trail, but Hancock kicks his Jutte and blocks Smoker off as well as breaking his Jutte in two. Smoker and Hancock seem to be onto each other now and Smoker warns Hancock what the Marines will do to her after this, and Hancock replies with “Do what you will”, to me that is saying that she will be fine with whatever they have in store for her as long as Luffy is OK.

Brains!

Brains!

Luffy runs up to Iva, Kuma and Doflamingo, Luffy notices Kuma and asks Iva if he knows him. Iva says he does but there is something wrong with him. Iva refuses to believe that Kuma can be dead, as the man in front of him fits him perfectly. Doflamingo says that just the other day Dr Vegapunk finished modifying Kuma into the “Perfect weaponized human”. It is revealed that Kuma volunteered to become the government’s test subject, they modified his hands (or by guess, arms), then his legs, it is said he was still the same Kuma while he was being modified. Iva still doesn’t believe this because Kuma hated the government and would never give himself over to it. It was said a few days ago that he still retained his own personality, but is now a walking corpse with no memory of being human.

That's a whole lot of Iva

Kuma fires a laser at Iva and Luffy; they manage to dodge it with Iva still trying to talk to him. Luffy remembers Kuma saying that they will “Never meet again” and Luffy might have realised that Kuma would have known this would happen. Kuma appears behind them in a crowed of Iva’s followers, Kuma attacks them and anger’s Iva, who attacks him with what looks like a powerful attack, showing he’s ready to fight at full power. He seems to obviously care for his nakama a lot, and beats Kuma down saying he won’t let him get away with attacking them. Iva and Kuma now seem to be set for an all out brawl.

Minor character man has a plan!

Luffy and Iva’s nakama start running towards the gallows where Ace is held. Buggy seems to have a plan and looks like it will be carried out soon. Crocodile and Mr 1 are fighting up on Whitebeards ship; they take out a few pirates and then Jose comes rushing in and smacks Crocodile with his diamond arm. I believe Jose used Haki as there is no other way that I can see that can explain how he could have made contact with Crocodile; he had no blood, water, or any liquid. Doflamingo stops Jose with his power and asks Crocodile if he wants to team up, whether if Doflamingo has a separate plan from the Marines or if he just wants to team up to get Jose out-of-the-way, I don’t know.

As Luffy is running towards Ace, Mihawk stands in his way. Luffy recognises him and Mihawk apologizes to Shanks, saying he won’t hold back, and wonders if fate will allow Luffy to survive past his black sword.

You better not be talkin' about me!

You better not be talkin' about me!

I want to talk about Hancock for a little bit, do you believe now she has clearly shown everyone that she if on Luffy’s side, that she will join Luffy? I mean, Hancock would make the 10th person in Luffy’s crew, and she’s a female and I believe the next crew member will be a female. She’s also strong, so she’d be useful, she might also teach Luffy how to use and control Haki.

Predictions

I think next chapter will involve more fighting than revelations, but I believe one might pop up, maybe something about Mihawk and Shanks, it’d be awesome if Mihawk joined Luffy, or if Dragon and/or shanks appeared to help Luffy. I’m not too sure what to predict in the next chapter, so we’ll just have to wait.

There is no One Piece chapter next week. So it should appear around the 22nd of October, maybe earlier if we are lucky.

  1. Nice job with the breakdown! i also wonderd abput boa joining the crew, but i doubt it. She seems like she is stronger then luffy for one thing. Also so far all the crew members that joined had a dream or desire to be the best at something or to get something and it seems like her dream would just be to help luffy. That dosent seem like a fitting dream for a member of the next pirate kings crew, but who knows?

  2. Hmmmm, I guess you are right with the whole dream thing. I think just helping Luffy would be her dream if anything, or maybe she has another desire we are not aware of. I think she is stronger than Luff, though only due to her being able to control Haki, as her main devil fruit power is pretty much useless against him. With the amount of Haki Luffy has, if he could control it, he’d be stronger than her and that’s not counting the rate that Luffy grows at.

    If Hancock doesn’t join the crew, I think she might retire to her island (since it has strong warriors there), or set sail as a pirate once again.
